As Kuwait prepares itself for celebrating its 57th National Day and 27th Anniversary of Liberation, the Amir of the country, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, has ordered the payment of debts of both local and expat prisoners from his personal funds.
Praising the Amir’s humanitarian act, National Assembly speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanem, said, “His Highness the Amir’s humanitarian act presents anew an example of how the ruler is aware of citizens and residents’ hardships and preoccupations. Moreover, he has re-presented Kuwait as the Humanitarian Center and a home of social and humanitarian solidarity and relieving the underprivileged.”
Kuwait has many people imprisoned for failing to pay their debts. Such a move from country’s leader is appreciated by both the local and expat community.
